Crochet beanie hats are the perfect all-purpose gift: Babies need hats, elderly people wear hats, and so does almost everyone in between; they're great for keeping your head warm in cold weather but they also make a stylish accessory.

A handmade beanie is special because you made it by hand with someone in mind the whole time you were creating it. But this project can also serve a purpose, like as a charity crochet project for those undergoing chemo, for example.

Beanie hats are easy to make. However, they can also be easily dressed up. Change the crochet stitches, play with colors, and add details to make a basic beanie just a bit more special.
